Teaching for Quality (Te4Q) is a faculty development certificate program that trains clinical faculty how to effectively teach quality improvement and patient safety (QIPS) to students, residents, fellows and other clinicians. By training clinical faculty how to integrate QIPS across the continuum of health professions education, Te4Q ensures that QIPS is a part of training from day one. The course includes virtual, interactive sessions, application exercises, resources and a capstone educational design project. Those who complete the Course requirements, including the design and presentation of a QIPS educational activity, will receive an AAMC Te4Q Certificate.
Created in 2012, Te4Q was launched in response to an identified gap in the education of students, residents, and practicing clinicians in quality improvement and patient safety. Te4Q is being enhanced and re-launched as a virtual Course with updated content that supports multiple national academic and clinical priorities for improved patient and health care outcomes, with an emphasis on progressive accreditation requirements (e.g., those of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education).
